One Question Interviews: Meek is Murder

Frank Godla (Meek Is Murder)

SPB: What do you think of cassettes?

Godla: They will always have a special place in my heart. I started collecting music when cassettes were still the norm, and wound up with several hundred cassette and VHS tapes in my house. I’d even make my own mixtapes to carry around in my bag, equipped with a #2 pencil of course. Eventually I joined the tape trading scene which opened some doors to finding obscure bands I fell in love with from around the world. Some of my earliest memories in life also involved my dad playing cassettes from Metallica, Ozzy, Twisted Sister, Dokken, Scorpions, Skid Row, and many more. I guess you can say cassette tapes are the reason I found metal, and created the life I live today. That said, as someone who lived the experience of cassettes, I’ve been a little confused why they’re making a comeback. They truly were the most inconvenient and poorly made medium of music history, but ultimately if you’re rocking sweet tunes that’s all that matters.
